It was really hard to fit in but it wasn’t as hard for me as for the comics from LA who is coming to visit. You know you have like 3 New York comics like say Giraldo, Voss, Patrice or somebody or Keith Robinson. They knew each other backward and forward. They had done a million gigs with each other. They are used to yell at each other, they use to insult each other. And then one LA comic who was like ‘What The Fuck?’ It was always a weird mix. You should never have one at anything in a panel. You should have two LA comic, two woman or two whatever if the dominant thing is something else. You can’t have that one person to carry the load of everything. But that happen quite a bit. You will just be watching and ‘Oh this is a car accident’…

Cartoon is a big thing for Andre. We talked about our favourite cartoons. He shares his love and how the writing in that medium works and how a show is able to stay relevant with a changing rotation of writing staff. Of course, we talked about joke writing and he told me the difference when it comes to joke writing and being strict about word economy. He predicted streaming gigs are here to stay and giving tips and tricks to stay relevant.
